Sure, but as you say:

Not being a Palestinian Arab, I think such criticism from my part is
most effective when directed to German antisemitists and pro-Israel
bigots, when and if some Arab would care to ponder my arguments at all.
It a Palestininan Arab cares to read my polemic against German
Nazi-nostalgics, she or he will note my argument, where I put the
colonial settler state into one line with Apartheid South Africa, or the
crimes of German colonialism like the genocide of the Hereros in Namibia
of 1904, when it was a German colony, also Australia or USA as colonial
settler states, the French colonial war against Algeria or for a
"Algérie Française" on the one hand, but on the other reject any notion
that this colonialism bears a common trait of "Judaism" and could be
traced to the Talmud, etc.
BTW, it is not that Palestinian Arabs invent themselves antisemitic
nonesense, they are pushed to it by the Israeli propaganda who draws an
equal sign between the resistance against the real oppression by the
state of Israel and the hatred against a phantasised power of Jews by
the European and US-american antisemites. "When my oppressor tells me
that those are the theoretical explanations of my resistance, then maybe
there is something to it".
